One of my friend is re-locating to Bangalore with his family. This is the first time he is going to work out of Bangalore... I would be glad if anyone could help me with some information on "Cost of living at Bangalore" .. tried googling..but no help... :-( pls!

From India, Madras
Hello Asha,
I have been living in Bangalore for the past 6 years. It all depends on your friend's salary. From my point Bangalore is not much costlier than other Metropolitan cities.
The thing is in Bangalore you have lot of unwanted ways to spend. Ask your friend to frame his/her expenditure.

Dear Mahesh,
Thanks a lot. He he is a family man and quite conservative. HE would liek to know the expense of basic things, what is required to take a middle class family person liev a decent life.
Is there any analysis / report that you can help me with?

Hi Mahesh.
Bangalore is costlier than other metro cities. But lesser than Mumbai & Delhi.
Compared to Kolkata, Chennai & Hyderabad it is costly. Cost of living depends upon the persons salary & the way his/hers life style.

From India, Bangalore
Middle class family life style. I am to assume he takes about 30 - 35 K permonth. well...I dont ask my friends what they are paid :- ( sorry for lack of information on that....

Would be helpful if you have any document that speaks about or provides a reference to cost of living in different cities(cost of living indices by govt or private organisation) which would help you while recruiting people from different cities. (esp Bangalore)
From India, Madras
Any recruiters involved in hiring people for different cities may be able to help me with this info :-(

Hello Asha,
See the issue is with the travel. If he is provided with some mode of transportation from his company then there are lot of places in Bangalore where he can take up a house for rent in range of 5k.
Schooling for children- Yes its little costlier because of the standards of implications in education industry.
As you have mentioned the salary range. I don't think so that it will be very hard for him to put up in Bangalore.
Please do check with him in regards to his mode of transportation and office location. So that I can be little more specific in my information.

Anyway let me check for any piece of information in regards to document which you have asked.

Bangalore for me is not much costlier because you get a normal meal for 20 rs to more than 1200 rs/meal.. Again public transportation are slightly above the normal compared to Chennai. You have lots of facilities like "Car Pooling" etc which are available in Bangalore.
People say Bangalore is costlier because, People were paid more, in turn they tend to spend more.. Its kinda "Demand Supply Elasticity"
